"The course was absolutely 101% successful. What a wonderful teacher and such a delightful man. I can’t wait for the next one!’ (workshop student)."
"Fun, friendly (and forgiving!) Ben is very encouraging and patient, even when it takes a bit of time for the penny to drop."
"Ben shares his expertise in “bite-sized” pieces, each lesson building on the next. Every week there is enough new information and resources to be interesting and challenging, yet not so much that I feel overwhelmed."
"Whether you want to improve your practice, talk about famous artists, discover the trials and tribulations of exhibiting, talk about which brushes to buy or the latest exhibition, an hour talking with Fleur is a joy."
"Fleur makes painting three cherries on a ledge, in acrylic paint, using a palette knife, look incredibly simple – the reality is that she’s a hugely technical painter who manages to communicate her own skill and enthusiasm with great simplicity."
"Fleur has an enormously wide range of references and styles – whenever I’m stuck with my painting, I know a session with her will quickly get me back on track whatever I’m working on."
"There is a quiet calmness about Marji that belies her huge energy for getting involved – it’s just great being in the studio when she is there."
